On Sep. 12 Contact Music shares that Beth Behrs was attacked by a large dog while walking her Yorkie, Betty, earlier this week. The "2 Broke Girls" star called animal control to her Los Angeles apartment after a neighbor's dog reared up and tore a chunk out of her sweater.
Behrs is doing fine and wasn't hurt in the incident, just shook up. Behrs says that she worries that larger dogs that are aggressive towards her or others could do serious damage to smaller dogs, like her Betty, who wouldn't be able to defend themselves if they needed.
According to the animal control website, the owner of the dog was issued a fine and ordered to keep better control of their pet. What that means exactly is not certain, but muzzling, restraints, and proper training have all been mandated in the past. There was no mention as to whether or not this was the dog's first aggressive incident, however, if it is not, the owners may have to put their dog down if it happens again. Fortunately for them, Beth Behrs didn't request that of the dog owners as she could have done.
